Insurance broker opens state-of-the-art office following major merger

Bollington Wilson GroupInsurance broker, Bollington Wilson Group , which serves 140,000 customers nationwide from the North West, and a further 7,000 through its underwriting company, is expanding its operations with the opening of a state-of-the-art office facility in Sale, Manchester.

The move comes following a merger last year between Bollington Insurance and Wilsons Insurance which has created one of the UK’s leading insurance brokers.

The new group controls premiums in excess of £150m and is going through a period of unprecedented growth, which it will now continue from the large Clipper House development.

The new office will accommodate the relocation of all staff from Bollington’s corporate insurance office in Altrincham, as well as some departments from existing offices in Macclesfield, and will be home to over 200 of its 450 employees.

The company has plans to welcome up to 100 new staff members as the business continues to grow. The firm will also continue to operate from its Macclesfield and Liverpool locations.

Bollington Wilson Group CEO Paul Moors said: “Bollington has had several years of solid growth expanding on our core areas of corporate insurance, motor trade and care insurance, into a specialist niche and affinity insurance broker.

“Building on this we wanted to expand our offering and increase our market share, which resulted in the merged operations with Wilsons Insurance Group.

“We are now in an enviable position of having a diverse, successful base from where we can grow organically and through acquisition. To accommodate this, we have had to reassess our office spaces and Clipper House was an ideal new additional location for us.

“Our sales teams across all product lines can now work under one roof and we’ve been able to bring two diverse business cultures together as we all work towards our unified vision.”
